Jamaica's senior Reggae Boyz turned in a spirited but somewhat patchy performance to defeat the St. Vincent and the Grenadines 5-1 in their friendly international at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica on Tuesday night.

Marlon King, (in the 26th and 42nd minutes), led the way for the Rene Simoes coached squad as the hard running Demar Phillips, of Stoke City in England, got his name on the score sheet as well, with a beautiful finish earlier in the 17th minute of play to open the scoring and send the spectators in a frenzy.

Later on in the second half St. Vincent began attacking more aggressively but the Reggae Boyz played well to shut them down, by using the one-two passing and utilizing the flanks to get the better of their Caribbean neighbours.
